Subject: Bradford and other Pilgrim and Puritan leaders


Bradford's work is interesting. He does show how God answers prayer, how these political leaders had a fear (respect) of God and wanted to do the right thing. It is also clear how important it was for the leaders to TRUST the population, and not see them as hostile, but rather as those who gave them the authority to govern minimally, in order truly to be servants of the people. This is the story of Bradford, who was the governor of the Plymouth (plimoth) Colony, those who came first and established a successful colony of Britishers in North America. The actual story which Bradford actually wrote, is VERY different from the politically correct disinformation, often found in textbooks these days.

Bradford even tells the story of how the Founding Fathers tried a communist system, where they put all of their belongings together. The results were very challenging though, and this actually led to thanksgiving, when the Pilgrims gave thanks to God for the Indians (with whom they usually lived in Harmony). This is a good example of the positive impact of the self-denying total commitment simple lifestyle of the Puritans and Pilgrims.

There is much encouragement, many examples and interesting history found in this and other historic works. It is not difficult to read, and it is beneficial (and Free dictionary listed below for those who may need it).
